“Terrible Motel”
Reviewed June 13, 2006

We were suppose to stay here on May 8th for one night so we could catch a flight to JA. When we got there the heat had not worked for some time and the lady at the desk gave us the option of staying or not, as I did get a room on-line and had given a credit card to them. The rooms are very ugly and were cold. We decided not to stay and went to the Super 8 next door. It was nothing special either. I think the motels by the airport are not well kept. I did get charged on my credit card bill and am now disputing it, cause the clerk said she would take care of the charges.

We stayed overnight at Motel 6 in West Des Moines May 24, 2006 and felt we got a great deal for $45! We chose this motel because of it's convenience to I-80...easy access on and off I-80...and because they allow pets.

The motel was fairly new, extremely clean and comfortable for our one night stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was small and very sparse on the decoration, but I just wanted a clean room with a comfy bed and a tv for the night! There is also an elevator. The shower was nice and powerful, which is a rare find for a motel these days! There is a Perkins restaurant right next door and they do take out! There are also fast food restaurants very close by. Not a highly congested area, which was nice.

Overall, a very pleasant stay...we felt very safe and comfortable.
